pad sequential filenames so alphabetical order matches numerical order. It automatically determines the necessary integer field width, treats filenames with different prefixes or suffixes separately, removes redundant padding, and is reasonably efficient, even for thousands of names.
WebVCR+ is a Web frontend to record your TV shows from, which has a TV Guide-like interface. You can record your shows to many different formats, and convert them during the idle time your computer isn't recording. You can also add favorites and manage your video library through the Web interface. Listings can be specified in XMLTV format, or grabbed from advalvas/eurotv. You can also easily add different commandline video recorders.
furious_tv is a PVR backend that uses an SQLite database to hold XMLTV listings data. Using that data, it can automatically execute commands to record TV shows off of a capture device (multiple capture devices are supported). If Shuriken is installed, furious_tv can also automatically power the system on/off for recordings to save power.
JCap is a Java application for adding captions and descriptions to your digital photograph collection and includes a search dialog for finding photos later. It is completely self-contained; it doesn't require a separate database application or Web server to run. Captions, descriptions, and keywords are stored in plain text files in the same folder as the images they describe and can be read by any application that can read text files. The primary goals are: to help you find photos later, to help share photos with others, and to be able to read photo captions and descriptions thirty years from now on whatever computer you happen to have at the time.
